Mauritius Hash Trash 523
27-07-2008 Albion Harold, Adrienne and Olivier Helen & Evert #523
There was something fishy about today’s hash; mmm I wonder what it could be…
So cast your lines and set your sails, you’re going fishing with me!
523 Fishy Stories…
A school of about 70 colourful marine creatures swam across the island to meet up in a delightful little spot named Albion, on this auspicious day which was blessed by sun – for the first time this week – Hooray!
The path was not too long nor too difficult, with loads of beautiful views over the bay and some interesting wet & muddy walks through the sugarcane – all in all a whale of a trail.
Tuning in at the Circle
So there we were… all dressed up fish-like, in a fishy street called Dolphin Avenue.
GM Alan was fishing for compliments and we all wondered how he had ended up with Adrienne’s keys, surely something fishy must have been going on, because the key lady was offering everybody a tray full of keys just like juicy snacks and therefore enhancing the challenges for the swingers in disguise!
The GM thanked Evert & Ellen for sponsoring the Tuna Barbecue, as well as Harold & Adrienne for offering their garden as the On In. A big THANK YOU was also given to the rest of the Hash Mishmanagement for all their continued joined efforts to make the hash a success, and to all the cooks who always volunteer to help out with the food.
Take a sneak peek at our Big Fish, GM Alan, in his ocean suit.

GM Alan handed over his Podium to Mystery RA of the Day, Leslie aka Captain Nemo, who was definitely not feeling like a fish out of water when he told us his FISHING JOKE
RA Leslie wanted to point out to everyone that LESLIE TIME is very important…ehm…oooops, I mean, LEISURE TIME!
One day he was fishing at Le Morne and relaxing on the seashore with his fishing rod, when suddenly there was an eclipse. This eclipse turned out to be a big American guy that obscured the sun and wanted to give him advice on how to fish better. So he started by saying that Leslie had to go into the water, not with fishing rod but with a boat…closer to the reef to catch lots of fish. Afterwards, he advised Leslie to get a bigger boat and venture out on the other side of the reef and eventually get himself a fleet of big boats… so that in the end he might be able to relax & enjoy himself! So Leslie replied … what the fish do you think I’m doing now???
The time has come to point out the BAD PEOPLE of today’s hash and the RA had a list of bigger fish to fry…
The first two sinners on the menu have a big age gap between them – one grew up at the hash and the other wrote a few books…
1 ~ Alan & Isabelle!… …For some SERIOUS SHORTCUTTING.
RA Leslie noticed a very interesting phenomenon, although there was about half a kilometre of water path and sprinklers through the sugarcane, he could not help but notice two VERY DRY hashers…
2 ~ Phil & MurielOr shall we say…a Philnomenon? Well they were definitely not dry anymore after this down-down!
WOW – that marks the end of today’s double ds!
GM Alan was whisked back into the circle to call upon the Hares…
Adrienne, Olivier, Chris & Christine…
An honourable down-down for a Hash scoring 12.35 on Rosemarie’s Scale.
Well done chaps, couldn’t have done it better me-self.
The time has come …
The moment everyone has been anticipating …
The occasion for EVERT’s Revenge …
Today, the colour of Revenge has become Blue like the Sunny Skies above Albion…
And the moment Claude dreaded has finally arrived.
Our one and only
“What you must never do with the SMELLY BLUE” – SMELLY BLUE, yep, that one!
…was handed over in ceremonious fashion by Evert to his partner in crime, Claudissimo.
(Evert added his souvenir cell phone so he would not get lost again!)
Please tell me…who could wear the Smelly Blue with more flair than our Claude?
He even took the Smelly Shower in his stride and made it look like fun!
The GM ’s spotlight shone on Elisce (who was the latecomer first timer) – so she still had to enter the circle and introduce herself, and she was lucky the RA didn’t give her a down-down for smoking in the circle!
Another moment has come, which we have all been waiting for…
SURPRISE FOR THE BEST DRESSED FISH
The Judges presented themselves…
Ellen (wife to Evert the previous custodian of Smelly Blue)
Patti (a hasher through and through)
They chose 5 most fishy finalists
Kevisen, Zan, Marie Claire, Eileen & Sarah!
Prizes were handed out to everyone and Kevisen was the Grand Winner.
The rest of the afternoon was such fun,
We were all basking in the smiling sun,
The Tuna Barbecue was oh sooooooo good…
Thanks to Evert & Ellen, the Tuna King & Queen of the neighbourhood!
Our next hash site is wrapped in mystery… Watch the web and join us again in a fortnight!
I just swam into a jellyfish!
Until next time,
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here
Waiting for you! ~
Mermaid kisses & Hashy wishes
